the facebook post you made about the crappy job president whoever did, gets you arrested in the middle of the night. you werent doing anything wrong,
but what was wrong changed.
Umm, you and I both know that's not ever going to happen in Australia. Or most places the people on ATS live.
But it makes the fearple bleat!
id like to say i agree 100% but we can never know what changes will come.
i hope everyday you are right, but the first time john howard started talking about sedition as a law, i started being concerned of what may come.
it doesnt take much for a government we all love and trust, to change hands and turn. sometimes we ask them them to change hands and turn.
we take for granted the protections of our democracy, but these actions undermine those protections, and make every other protection we have a little
weaker, eroding them all away until we have no protections.
used to be here in aus, we had unions protecting workers rights. howard government broke them, brought in work choices.
just a small example of how things we take for granted as a protection can be completely taken away.
maybe these things wont be an issue in our lifetime, but we cannot say they never will, and being ok with happening slowly now isn't something im
prepared to be.
as for most places people on ATS live, i wont speak for them. i dont trust it not to happen, as historically these things have happened again and
this is realism, not fearporn. right now we still have power. what im saying is we should be using that power to nip this **** in the bud before it
becomes something more.
